In one of the most important posts of May, author Farhad Manjoo explains in an article for the New York Times how Twitter is being used for spreading false and misleading information:

“How Twitter Is Being Gamed to Feed Misinformation”, via nytimes.com.

The term gamed in the title is a bit misleading though, as it implies you gain personal advantages in posting misinformation. Due to the fact that Twitter can be used and controlled easily by robots (or botnets), we also want to add another component here: this is often done simply for fun. Technologically, Twitter is complete crap.

But there are alternatives.

We as a publishing house already offer high-tech and dedicated services in the same field since 2010:

we try to encourage anyone to use your own website, your own blog, your own skills in spreading information. Alas, a friendly reminder that we still sell complete packages which start at 50€ only for making your “own Twitter“:

https://aethyx.eu/eshop/.

Or maybe you want to directly publish an eBook on your own, we offer help here too: https://aethyx.eu/eshop/ebook-publishing/.

It will feel like a breath of fresh air when you recognize that you can use more than 140 characters, insert additional files with your fingertips and format the code of your posts to your liking in no time. 😉

You can do it! We’re here to help!

Sincerely yours,
the aethyx staff

Dear readers,

if you want to change the future, if you want to be a part of what lies ahead, now it’s the right time to join artificial intelligence development.

We already are engaged in the following fields:

  • semantic web publishing via weblog technology
  • cloud technology via giving you the chance to be a part of it via owncloud
  • be a part of Android, which will influence the way we communicate & and use technology in the near future. Maybe forever

What is kind of irrational is the fact the we as a company show you the path what you as an individual or company should do: program AI. Program it. Now.

Yes, of course the question will be here: how? It’s incredibly easy.

Keyword: deep learning. Do it as a student would do. Use the tools which are already available. Yes, as a follower of AETHYX MEDIAE for years now, this may sound familiar and logicial. Believe us: it isn’t. People are stupid. People are lazy. Go ahead. Or we will do it, again, on our own.

In Germany we call this Fehdehandschuh. We never made jokes. This is serious business right here.

For those who won’t believe us, here a translated quote from the print magazine DER SPIEGEL, page 19, issue #14 2017:

“May be, but Google published in January the following message: scientists of the company invented an AI software which creates better AI software on its own. A digital perpetuum mobile.”

Welcome to your present! Wake the f**k up, please!

On the page prior to that statement, it starts with what we would like to encourage you with this snippet:

“Deep Learning is a mechanism which is learnable in a simple way. The tools for this technique are downloadable anywhere on the internet”

Geez, we are online since January 2010. This is _exactly_ what we shouted out via our Why? page:

“Secondly, technology is nothing without the human being. We have the tools, we live in the 21. century, it is time to be active. Your life has value. Do not waste it in front of the TV. Be active, forget your passive past”

We won’t say here what tools you should use, you decide. We won’t say here where to find these tools, you should know by now how. But just do! Heck, create this sh*t! On your own! It’s easier as you might think.

That’s it from us about this AI buzz. Stop playing video games, stop being a black hat, start to use and program AI!

We will do the same. We always did. Poor Lenos, who didn’t recognize this by now.

Best of luck to you out there,
the aethyx staff

Good evening dear readers,

2013: whistleblower Edward Snowden flees from the NSA to Hongkong and then to Russia while informing the world about secret spy activities against American citizens as well as those of other countries
2017: we read about the Vault 7 series by Wikileaks informing the world about the biggest intelligence leak to this date in covering similar techniques by the CIA

Times are changing and they are changing fast.

So, in a small time frame of only 16 months, our “prophecy” become true unfortunately, that the open web, the open internet is dead. And believe us, we also didn’t want to hear or read this, but http, the de-facto web protocol we all love and grew up with, is deprecated by now. This is like, well, telling millions over millions of web developers & users, bloggers, online journalists, artists, etc. all over the world “if you use insecure http, you suck!” It’s not fair, it’s not even their fault. But we pay for the bills in the end.

So, this March 2017 we did heavy work, project wide, under the hood: we switched from http to https. Everywhere. You can count us now to the 50% (at least according to Firefox statistics) of the web which implemented and use it already. This was no easy part and still there are issues. Let’s give you an overview of some of the problems we faced:

  • 1. after all, find free and good CA sites. The most promising project by now is Let’s Encrypt. Their work is in fact so promising and backed by heavy champions of the industry, they really could achieve their goal to encrypt the entire www
  • 2. read about the redirect methods in your .htaccess, if you didn’t know already about it. Otherwise your sites will crash/not use https
  • 3. eliminate mixed content: unfortunately Mozilla, Google and Apple won’t accept https 100% when you start using using it. You need to invest time to eliminate all your old links to documents, graphics, counters, etc. Double check your databases too. This will take most of your time maybe, but it should be worth it
  • 4. Relax, drink a beer, enjoy sun. You finally made it!

Working with the internet today is almost entirely defined by working with the WWW. No matter what you do, the most of the stuff you do online you do via your web browser. Heck, even smartphone apps use the web as their platform.

We may have lost the fight to keep the web an open medium. Not a good sign. But we are still in fighting to keep it a secure medium. Which is, well, until someone in maybe 27 years from now on (remember, the web was born around 1990) will know new facts, read between the lines again and state “https is deprecated”!

Never stop fighing. Never.

Enjoy SSL everywhere,
the aethyx staff

Happy New Year to y’all!

We’re starting the brand new year 2017 with an exclusive sale of the first commercial project we did: zockerseele.com.

Soon we’ll start auctioning the complete project, but until this unspecified date we’re trying to find a new owner via our common channels.

Bidding will start at 7.500€. First come, first served.

zockerseele.com snapshot

And here are some highlights you’ll get for those bucks:

  • project’s existing since 2005, already 12 years old now
  • 3 URLs: zockerseele.com, zockerseele.net & zockerseele.de
  • layout, design, graphics, etc. included
  • 5.300+ (German) entries about every video game topic you can imagine
  • 1.86 million visitors to this date…
  • …as well as 1.4+ billion page views
  • currently 200-300 visits per day
  • site statistics with databases included
  • size of all the files: 2.16GB

We’re doing this for several reasons: firstly, see it as an experiment. Secondly, no one has the time or ambition to write entries anymore. Thirdly, we want to expand more on the Android platform. And fourthly, we need money for developing and promoting these apps.

If you’re interested, drop us a line: info@aethyx.eu. The project will be sold to the first one who accepts the fee of 7.500€. In this case we won’t do an auction. So just do it and do it quick!

It was helluva fun to maintain this project. But in the end, it’s time for a split and try something new.

Thanks for reading! Spread the word!

Kindest regards,
the aethyx staff

Dear readers,

2016 was a sad year for the western civilisation. What happened with BREXIT and the election in the USA was a cataclysm which will throw humanity as a whole back into uncertain times. When even the Oxford Dictionary is naming “post-truth” as word of the year, one may anticipate what lies ahead.

But these are not the times to surrender. These are changing times, times to step out of the pack and finally start fighting.

Regarding new technologies we got all the tools we need. Now is the time to use them. Against those who are against us, against tolerance, multi-culturalism, diversity, freedom, peace, free will. As stated in the last decade by some, “there’s a war on for your mind”. Don’t be tricked. It lies in your hands, literally.

  • Stop watching TV or listening to radio. Start your own TV or radio, with the service you choose.
  • Stop reading mainstream media, start your own media house or blog, like we did back in 2010.
  • Stop selling yourself, your interests and friends on Facebook or Twitter for nothing, start your own social network, like Friendica or open a Diaspora* pod.

Help those who want to leave those exploiting places, think for your friends and families, mind money less. No matter which way you finally choose, no matter which tool you decide to use, you did it for yourself, your social contacts, completely on your own. And no matter which problems you may run into, we are here to help, just drop us a line: info@aethyx.eu. Or use our comfortable contact form.

Well, stay sharp out there! 2017 won’t be easy, that’s for sure. Let’s forget 2016, as fast as possible. Historians will call this one of the lost years of humanity some day. If they will be allowed to work still, of course.

“Enjoy” your holidays & we wish you a wonderful start into the new year! Keep on fighting! You can do it!

Only the bestest,
your aethyx staff

“If sales control stats I place no faith on the majority” – El-P

Dear readers,

we usually avoid political topics but what happened today to western democracy (and technology) is like the final nail in the coffin of all of us still living and breathing in what is called “the west”: a neo-capitalist, xenophobic, sexist, racist, rich white anti-social is reigning the military most powerful and thus most dangerous country _on earth_ for the next. Four. Years.

It’s nothing new and we know already that the election system in the USA is rusty (at best) and not up to date when we watched a rich Texan sociopath being artificially elected in 2000 which ultimately led to the biggest disaster for western civilization since WWII, but the 9th of November 2016 will be seen by historians in the future as the date the United States of America, and maybe even all of the Western world, was no more.

The dream is over.

What we saw today is classic history repeating. Even in Europe, no matter where you look, Hungary, Austria, France, Scandinavia, Brexit of UK this year, Germany, national-socialism is on the rise again. This is no path for world peace, this is a path into a world war. And if this gets hot, it’ll be the last of humanity. A rational mind knows this. For decades, not even centuries.

2016 showed us what we really are: mostly white, stupid, retards. Humanity won’t work with this shit. We don’t exclude us: we need to get rid of ourselves. We became useless. That’s how we feel today. We should mourn ourselves. We failed miserably. We are finally entering the very last dark age.

But maybe we should be happy: as no one can even anticipate what will happen next, let’s party! Fighting for or against something became utterly useless! Yay!1

Approximately one and a half year ago one of our authors hacked together an Android app for FEMEN. The nature of this movement involves bare human breasts which is the main reason we weren’t able so far to distribute it via offical app stores like Google Play.

FEMEN Android app icon

But fear not, the author released the app already into the wild and it’s actually available via GitHub, see here:

https://github.com/aethyx/femen.

Licensed under the GPLV2 which means the digital world is invited to add code as well as features at any time to develop this project further.

Most of the time so far the releases here are maintenance releases: updating the app to run under the most current Android OS version as well as updating the resources used here. Social networks take down FEMEN pages quite often for no reason. To find and implement new content as soon as possible is one of the main tasks for new versions so far.

Please share and include the app into the open repositories where possible!

Also, don’t hesitate to join the project if you’re a coder or have new ideas for this app!

There should be more movements like FEMEN out there. The world would be a much better and more intelligent place for all of us. Rock on, girls!

Cheers,
the aethyx staff

Dear readers,

this month we’re trying to shape some awareness: we want you to switch! From whatever operating system you are using to Linux!

On the 5th of October 2016 humanity’s most advanced, most secure, most stable and (probably) most updated operating system turns 25. But, for reasons not fully understood to us from a technical perspective as well as from a rational point of view, to this date worldwide current estimations only count 87.000.000 actual users. With an internet population of over 3.4 billion…

As an entrance, if you’re curious how many and which distributions are available use this list:

http://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=popularity.

There exists a distribution for everyone!

  • For Mac-Enthusiasts who care about a beautiful desktop: choose Elementary
  • If you care about ethics, choose Debian
  • If you want to use “a Linux that everyone uses” choose Ubuntu or openSuSE, those two distributions are the easiest and offer the most support
  • If you want to be a programmer or hacker, choose Arch

This is only a very small list, Linux is diversity: to this date 280 different distributions are listed on Distrowatch.com, and growing.

Buried in a recent announcement the two biggest desktop CPU makers in the world, AMD and Intel, announced both that they only support Windows 10 or newer with their newest generation of chips. So time has come to support your own OS advancement too: switch to Linux when buying a new laptop or PC! We promise you won’t regret it.

Thanks for reading and don’t miss out: 5th of October 2016, Linux becomes 25! Happy Birthday, Linux! And thank you that you’re still with us to this date! You rock!

Regards,
the aethyx staff

Experts say the Self-publishing market will skyrocket the next 2 to 5 years. More and more publishers will emerge, taking market share from the big two which currently are Amazon and BoD (Books on Demand).

Phew, then we’re glad for our vision in 2010 when AETHYX MEDIAE was born!

It shouldn’t matter if you’re doing this online or offline by the way: in either case it was never easier and faster than it is today.

Of course, offering the complete online package is what we here at AETHYX MEDIAE do the whole day:

you start your weblog here with us in no time, for a fair and moderate price: see what we have in our store for you and convince yourself!

In fact we are a “one stop shop” in establishing your first weblog:

1) visit the link above and choose one of three options
2) we install your weblog usually in 24h and get it up & running
3) you’re ready to play! Welcome to the future of publishing!

In fact you can to this until you enjoy your pension. In case you want to quit after several years or even months, no big deal: what about converting your blog into an eBook after you retired, saving your precious texts for future generations and make an Euro here or there? Possible with AETHYX MEDIAE: we already published six eBooks this way, even with customised covers which are available via Amazon (*cough*), XinXii and Google Play Books! And believe us: due to a market which doesn’t even exist, these won’t be the only three.

We’re happy and looking forward what lies ahead together with you! Become a part of this today: info@aethyx.eu, contact us anytime!

See you soon, hopefully here,
the aethyx staff
